SOURCE: Manitowoc ice machine that will not produce ice

This is odd that Manitowoc is listed on a page showing a Whirlpool refrigerator model and number. What is the model number listed on your Manitowoc? Not the base model number. The number listed inside the top section. Manitowoc has a really good service reputation. Their control boards have a series of self diagnostics. Get me your model and we will go from there.

SOURCE: If my ice cubes are

Hi,
The ice thickness is too thin...
turn the screw on the ice sensor IN or clockwise about 1/8 turn at a time till you get the right thickness...give it a couple of dumps before making another adjustment after doing the first one...be careful as the sensor is very sensitive and can be knocked out of wack very easily...

SOURCE: manitowoc series 100 makes ice but wil not go into

I'm not sure what you mean by a series 100. Manitowoc series are by the model number first letter. B-series, Q-series, J-series, etc. A 100 lb Q-series would be the most recent. If memory serves they started with A, C, E, G, B, J, S, and are now on Q. You can get most of the service books on their website here.

Sorry I cant be of more help without a complete model number.

Manitowoc QY0214A starts up and in about 1 min. goes into heating cycle. What's my problem


The ice thickness probe is a plastic and metal piece hanging from the water distribution area at the top of the ice making plate. It is probably touching or really close to touching the plate. It should be about 1'4" - 5/16" from the plate. It is adjusted by turning the screw located on the top of the sensor facing out at you. turn it clockwise to thicken the ice. the ice should come off in one large piece linked together by a roughly 1/4" sheet across the front. You can get a 1/4" drill bit and lay it on the plate behind the metal tip of the sensing probe and use it as a feeler gauge. Turn the screw until the probe just makes contact with the bit. Remove the bit and try again.

The thickness sensor is shorting, making the machine continually harvest. Clean it and dry it. If it still happens, replace the sensor.

Code 8 blinking machine making very thin ice?


Short freeze, thine ice.
Cause: Grounded ice thickness sensor.
Solution: Check sensor for dirt and position. Clean and adjust gap to evaporator surface using 13/64" drill bit as a gauge, lay flat between evaporator plate and ice thickness probe and adjust 1/4 screw 1/8 of a turn clock wise at a time after every harvest cycle. You don't wont the ice any thicker than 13/64 or thinner either. If you are still having problem after cleaning probe then replace it but you will still have to adjust the probe.

Ice maker Manitowoc QD-0212A


This light is a harvest limit light. This light's primary function is to be on as water contacts the ice thickness probe during the freeze cycle, and remain on throughout the entire harvest cycle. The light will flicker as water splashes on the probe. The lights secondary function is to continuously flash when the ice machine is shut off on a safety limit, and to indicate which safety limit shut off the ice machine. Start up of machine after turned off. !. Before the ice machine starts, The water pump and water dump solenoid are energized for 45 seconds to purge old water from the water trough. This ensures that the ice making cycle starts with fresh water. The water fill valve energizes after 45 second water purge, and remains on until the water level probe is satisfied. 2. to pre-chill the evaporator, there is no water for the first 30 seconds of the freeze cycle. 3. The water pump starts after 30 seconds pre-chill. An even flow of water is directed across the evaporator and into each cube cell.

HOW TO RESET THE ICE THICKNESS PROBE


If it's the one on the front of the evaporator, there is a screw that increases / decreases the thickness. Make sure all the plastics are in correct positions etc, first. turn screw in or out until the metal part of the sensor is 3/16" away from the front of the evaporator plate to give a 1/8" bridge.

Manitowoc 210 ice maker


The thickness control (Im not sure if its like the bigger models) isa plastic piece that has 1 or 2 metal prongs that as the ise is frozen to the evap plate the water trickels closer to these probes. eventually commin gin to contact with the probe and allowing the board to "see" that the ise is ready for harvest. Perhaps this is set too close?

Or the machine may need a good cleaning. DO NOT USE LIMEAWAY on manitowoc. It has a nickle coating on the evap plate and the cleaner has to have inhibitors in it to keep the nickle plating from flaking off.

From your genmeral information these are a general idea of the 1st 2 things that can cause your problem.

Please ratem me as high as you can and let me know if you have tried anything and the results or if you have more information to add.
